The Lincolnwood Police Department announced it issued 24 citations during the recent Memorial Day “Click It or Ticket” enforcement period.
While Illinois’ 2020 seat belt compliance rate was 94.6%, unbelted occupants still account for over half of those killed in traffic crashes. The “Click It or Ticket” campaign aims to change the behavior of the millions of people who don’t buckle up. Thousands of lives could be saved each year if every vehicle occupant was properly restrained when traveling.
During the enforcement period, Lincolnwood Police Department wrote 9 citations for seat belt violations and took the following additional actions:
- 14 distracted driving citations
- 1 speeding citation
The Illinois “Click It or Ticket” campaign is administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation with federal highway safety funds.
